Motorists in Florida may want to take note of a recall that was recently announced by a manufacturer of fuel filters. Defects in automotive parts could potentially cause vehicle accidents that may result in severe personal injury or even death. It is certainly a concern to realize that something as insignificant as an ineffective bonding agent in a car part may have such devastating consequences.
Cummins Filtration recently recalled in excess of 63,000 fuel filters. Approximately 21,600 Cummins engines that were built during the period from April 28 to July 8 were said to have been fitted with the fuel filters that may be defective. In addition, about 42,000 filters were shipped to retailers as replacement parts for the aftermarket. The company undertook the task of advising all recipients of its Fleetguard fuel filters -- with FF63009 as part number -- of the recall, who will in turn identify clients who may be affected by the defect.
